Thumbs up Have fun, bastards.

From Opensnow.com:


Monday November 26th 2012 8:14am MST
By Meteorologist Joel Gratz

I started writing weekly emails about snow in December 2007. Ever since then it seemed like there was always something good to talk about. Last year threw a wrench in the "always something to talk about" theme as we went for long stretches without any natural snow. But last year was an anomaly, so I (and you) were hoping for something different this year.

Unfortunately, we're in a really bad weather pattern, and I don't see it breaking in the next 7-10 days. We will see snow flakes during the next week, but I don't believe accumulations will be significant.

The main theme for the next week is a big area of storminess over the west coast. Snow levels will stay high with relatively warmer air, but the highest elevations from Tahoe north to Oregon and Washington could see FEET and FEET and FEET of snow from now through next Monday.

The storm track over the next week will stretch from Tahoe and head north and east just clipping Utah and bringing good snow to Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. This leaves Colorado on the southern edge of the storm track and the result is just a few flakes from passing storms to our north.

The best chances for a bit of snow in Colorado is Thursday in the northern half of the state, Friday night for the northern two thirds, and perhaps again next Monday/Tuesday. I doubt that any of these storms will bring more than an inch or two, and even that might be generous, but for optimism's sake I did put an inch in the forecast during these times for some resorts.

The map shows total precipitation from now through 10 days out, and you can see that the storm track stays to our north.

Too bad here in Tahoe there's a good chance with this storm half the mountain will get poured on and the peaks will get feet of snow

Same in Oregon. Top of Bachy might do ok but I think the resorts on Hood are going to see mostly rain.

I was hoping you guys would be far enough North to get some cooler air. Guess the lower elevation negates that in this case.
